Enginio Installation Notes and Prerequisites

Installation Notes

Enginio is packaged with Qt beginning with Qt 5.2. When starting the Qt installation, ensure that the Enginio component in the Qt Cloud Services category is selected.

Enginio requires OpenSSL to be installed, except for iOS, where the native SSL framework is used instead.

Note: For Qt 5.2.0, Enginio comes in the online installer only.


A Qt Account is required to use the Qt Cloud Services. A Qt Account can be created at Qt Account Sign-up.

To run an Enginio Client application to use Qt Cloud Services, the backend id of an Engino Data Storage Instance is required.

Sign in to Qt Cloud Services using the Qt Account. Under Enginio Data Storage (EDS), press the Launch instance button to create a new cloud instance. Enter the name for the new instance and select a data center. Then press Create.

A dialog of the new instance appears showing the General tab. Here the instance Name, ID, and Address are shown. Select the Environment tab to show the EDS_BACKEND_ID and the EDS_INSTANCE ADDRESS. These values can be cut and pasted into the examples where required.

Note: Some of the examples have built-in EDS_BACKEND_IDs.

Select the Configure tab and press the Open button. This opens the dashboard for the new instance in a new browser tab. The dashboard is used for instance management.

These instructions are also found in Getting Started With Qt Cloud Services. Reading the documentation at Qt Cloud Services Developers is also recommended.
